NICOLES GUMS: under the knife
Well, its been done. I've got sutures in my mouth. Gum graft is completed. Hopefully our insurance reimburses us that 1180 buckaroos. I'm not supposed to pull my lip out to check it out (so i don't pull out the sutures), but I couldn't help it. I can't believe how small those sutures are!!!
Everyone has been telling me how painful this surgery is. It's really not so bad. I haven't cried once. As long as it doesn't get infected I should be fine.
Worst part of the whole thing is my diet this week: 100% carnation instant breakfast. Nothing crunchy. ): So sad no veggies. Since I have sutures on the roof of my mouth (where they took the graft from), its uncomfortable to even try pudding or anything remotely solid. Oh yeah, and NO PHYSICAL ACTIVITY for 72 hours. That's forever. I'm bored. Come visit me.
